Personal Safety

Security measures are in place at the event entrance. Large bags are not allowed to be taken into the event. There is no cloakroom.

Small bags are allowed into the event with the dimensions W21cm x H30cm x D8cm. We appreciate your cooperation and patience when entering the event.

We take the security and safety of our event-goers very seriously – it is a real priority. Please help us by bringing as little as possible and remember we do not allow bags larger than A4 into the arena. Please be patient while we carry out our security checks and searches, which take place at point of entry to the event.

Our security staff are there for your safety – please co-operate with them as they work to keep us all safe and sound. Some are covert, but most are obvious by their numbered tabard. Always go to them if you need help.

The medical tent is fully staffed and open in line with the arena. There are security measures you will see and of course ones that you can’t.

We work very closely with The Met Police and members of the security services to ensure our security procedures are up to date and we are following best practice. We put a lot of time and effort on briefing and training and run emergency exercises. Please help us by reporting anything that doesn’t look right to you and also please let us know if you spot an area where we can do better and we will get on it.

We don’t accept any discrimination towards any individual or groups of individuals at any of our events.

Irrespective of the background of the individual, be that gender, race, disability, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity. We are proud of the diverse nature of our events and their customers, if you see or experience anyone undermining this – no matter the severity – please report it immediately to one of our onsite staff.

Gunnersville does not condone the use of drugs, this includes legal drugs like Nos and herbal substances. Drugs enforcement laws are as applicable onsite as anywhere else in the UK. It is illegal to buy, sell or take drugs.

All drugs are potentially dangerous, there are no harmless drugs. The only way to avoid risks is to not take drugs at all. This goes for new psychoactive substances (formerly known as “legal highs”) as well. But we want our event goers to know above all else that you can come to us for help if you or your friends need it without fear of getting in trouble at any time. Always be honest with medics and welfare teams about what you have consumed so that they know how best to help you.
